Canon G10 with Raynox DCR-1540...


Art meets traditional Minnesota culture every year at the Art Shanties Project. The usual clusters of ice fishing houses on Minnesota lakes are re-imagined as themed art installations. As one writeup (tinyurl.com/yaj8ccg Will open in a new tab or window) described it, "the ad hoc assortment of whimsical art shanties offers both a celebration of and a refuge from midwinter's chill, a send-up to the wry humor, dogged determination, and sheer cleverness of the hardy folks who live in these sometimes brutal climes." I'd call it Burning Man for Minnesotans... without the nudity, of course. Official web site: tinyurl.com/72kgcf Will open in a new tab or window.
The cold seems to have affected my GigaPan, causing it to skip a row.

    The problem was solved by extending the button-push time. See gigapan.org/gigapans/41698/

    I'm thinking in terms of a custom-made "sweater" with a heat pack built in.

    Maybe to eliminate the problem of the robot skipping a row, you could find a battery operated hair blower and use it once a minute as a point-and-heat device to keep the robot from freezing, but not to heat the camera, especially the lens.
